A WONDERFUL WAY TO TAKE AWAY THE FEAR OF DEATH


A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, 'Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side..' Very quietly, the doctor said, 'I don't know..''You don't know? You're, a Christian man, and don't know what's on the other side?'

The doctor was holding the handle of the door; on the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, 'Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside.. He knew nothing except that his master was here,and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear.  I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing... I know my Master is there and that is enough.'

I know that is how I faced the fear of death with my heart problems and misdiagnosis of a terminal illness.. I reasoned that as long as Christ was there, that was all that mattered!

  3. Ohhh, I love this story! And it's perfect timing to share with my grandkids as we are working on learning encouraging BIble memory verses for the grand children all about what is heaven really like :) . What a great way to help them understand that, while we may not know everything about what it is like, we do know we can totally trust the One Who is there! Thank you!
